    I think that the new standard and early sovereigns like yours had the same bore size. The sovereign had a larger bell and different tapers post-tuning slide. I would assume a different leadpipe...

    Hmm, I'm not so sure about that. They are shaped like a sovereign (new standard has a loop that goes over the top of the valve buttons, whereas the sovereign has a loop that goes under the top of the...

    TSA isn't your problem, it's airline gate agents mostly you need to be concerned with. With southwest, mostly they don't care, but if there isn't room on the plane they are going to make you gate...

    It's possible your 4th valve was built too long and needs to be cut.

    I asked David Childs about his doing this, and he says he thinks it has a little less resistance than 4th valve and he does it with full trigger. I think that if your 1st, 3rd, and main tuning slides...

    B&S and Besson are both brands of the Buffet Crampon Group. The legacy B&S factory in Markneukirchen is where most of their European-made instruments are made, including Besson Prestige and Sovereign...

    Right. Different instruments have different amounts of space between the bottom of the piston and the bottom cap. Yamaha springs are fairly light in Yamaha instruments, but if your instrument is...

    I found an article in Norwegian from when he won young musician of the year. He was 10 at the time, in January. The video is more recent and he is 11 in the video. Started playing when he was six....

    Although it is certainly gaining steam, I'd characterize the brass band scene as a pretty specialized niche in the US still. I enjoy the Willson sound for sure, but I also like the UK sound concept...

    tuba players like to get these to use as "tenor tubas" because it is wrapped like a tuba and look like instruments they are familiar with. They use them with small tuba mouthpieces for certain...

    I took a closer look and it looks more like the JP274 than the JP-Sterling 374. It's a little bit mysterious exactly what factory those are made in, but I don't think it is jinbao actually. And I...

    Hey Dan. You might also look into the Trumcor euphonium mute if you want the Peter Gane. It's a similar design. You're welcome to borrow mine if you have a need for a gig.

    Right. I suggested above that a 1.5 is too small for orchestral bass trombone playing, but it's just right for someone who's just getting started with orchestral bass trombone playing. (Of course,...

    I'm a big believer in using the mouthpiece that's right for the instrument rather than trying to keep everything with the same size rim. I do like playing rims with consistent shapes and widths, but...

    My experience is that "unscrupulous" describes Mr. Corrigan perfectly. But in this case, they do say it is "artist series" and they do explain on their web site (although it is buried in the FAQ) the...

    except it doesn't look like a jinbao... it does look a lot like the JP Sterling, though -- not sure what factory exactly that comes from, but I'll bet it's a Chinese instrument of roughly equivalent...

    I think it's likely they just put together an instrument with leftover Kanstul parts. I think it's probably too soon for them to have gotten tooled up to produce any parts on their own. Getting...

    I like modern Besson instruments a lot. I think the response and slotting is top notch. The intonation could be much...

    Looks to me like a late 19th-century or early 20th century pattern, similar to what would have been made in Bohemia by Bohland and Fuchs for stenciling by any number of US importers. Check out this...

    Isn't it? Yes, you have a really good point - I would just say that baritone has to be more of all that than euphonium. Compared to baritone, euphonium is very forgiving. Baritone takes a lot of care...
